    Hello everyone, my name is Dylan. I'm a 3D artist( not by profession). I like to model in blender and hope to one day have my models used in a game. Have modeled a few guns in the past and published them on the unity asset store.( Asset is pending review though). Is there any other way I can get my assets to unity developers so I can know how the assets perform in a project. Your response will be appropriated.

    First of all: don't share links to social media sites containing the images. Most are walled gardens. Here, I cannot view the images because Facebook wants me to sign in / create an account.

    If you want to get the assets used by others, probably best to put them on a site that provide free or low cost assets. There are a ton of 3d asset sites like Sketchfab, CGTrader and Artstation. For free/cheap assets many users will more often look on opengameart.org or itch.io.

    Many artists upload their content to as many sites as they can because sales are few and far between, especially for heavily contested designs such as weapons.

    If this gallery thumbnail is indicative of what the submitted asset contains, be prepared to get a "too simple" rejection:

    Here are some things to consider to improve on "too simple" assets respectively avoid making those in the first place but primarily check the competitors. Has it been done before? Can you match or exceed either quality or quantity?

    For the images above textures are missing and that will likely get these assets rejected.
    I'd also expect such a weapon to be fully rigged (eg swappable clips, spring load action, pullable trigger, etc). If they are not rigged, the weapons may also get rejected because there are plenty of "modern weapons" on the store that are rigged, if not animated. And some modular weapon assets allow you to swap out the handle, rifle, scope, magazine and what not.

    Note that while the asset is pending review you can still update its contents without affecting the queue number.

    Thank you for your honest.. I really appreciate it... The submitted asset does have textures. Not rigged though, as I am currently learn that process.. but thanks for the info. At least I know someone else's view.
